LUBBOCK, Texas -


Lubbock Police Department crash investigators are investigating a crash in the 2100 block of Clovis Road that sent a child to the hospital with life threatening injuries.

Just before 4:30 p.m. on August 27th, LPD received reports of a crash between a Nissan Altima and semi-truck in front of the La Super Carniceria Meat Market off Clovis Road.

The three occupants in the Altima were taken to the hospital with injuries. The 23-year-old female driver and a six-year-old girl sitting the backseat have minor injuries. A four-year-old boy sitting in the front passenger seat with no seatbelt has life-threatening injuries. As of Tuesday morning, he remains in critical condition.

The 50-year-old semi-truck driver was not injured.

Through the initial investigation, it appears a semi-truck was eastbound in the left lane on Clovis Road, and the driver attempted to turn right into the meat market parking lot to make a delivery. The Altima was traveling east in the right lane and struck the cab of the semi-truck as it pulled in front of the car.

This case remains under investigation by LPD crash investigators.

At approximately 4:30 p.m., Lubbock police responded to a major crash between a car and semi-truck in the 2100 block of Clovis Road near the La Super Carniceria Meat Market.

A 4-year-old passenger in the car was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. 

The cause of the crash is still undetermined.
